MC5Back In The USA ... LP
Atlantic, Early 70s. Very Good ... $29.99
The MC5 move to Atlantic Records after their first album – and find a whole new sort of focus that's pretty great! Their classic debut was a raw live album – designed to capture their intensity on the Detroit scene of the late 60s – but this set has the group stretching out, and really going for something else – working in the studio for the first time, with surprisingly strong production from a young Jon Landau – and a sense of focus in the songs that shows a great degree of maturity, while still keeping all their pre-punk edges! Wayne Kramer and Fred Sonic Smith are plenty darn fierce on guitar – and the titles alone give a good idea of the energy of the record – and include "Tutti Frutti", "Teenage Lust", "High School", "Shakin Street", "The Human Being Lawnmower", and "Back In The USA".

Sam RiversQuest (PA USA pressing) ... LP
PA USA, 1979. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $6.99
One of Sam Rivers' most freely expressive albums – a set of extended improvisations that features the leader on tenor, soprano, flute, and piano – really spinning out with some strongly expressive solos! The rest of the lineup is quite free too – with Dave Holland on bass and Barry Altschul on percussion – a pair who sometimes hit rhythmic impulses at the best moments, but also often stretch out and do their thing in a relatively free way too. Titles include "Judgement", "Hope", "Expectation", and "Vision". LP, Vinyl record album

Bruce SpringsteenBorn In The USA ... LP
Columbia, 1984. Very Good+ ... $14.99
The album where Bruce Springsteen really settles in as The Boss – gritty, chest-pumping anthems all the way here on this one! Born In The USA is so exuberant and full of life, even when Bruce is angry –as he is on the title track – his charisma is so strong that you'd be forgiven for thinking he's cheerleading, when he's really criticizing. Strong stuff, even if you might want to skip over couple of overplayed numbers – with "Cover Me", "Darlington County", "I'm On Fire", "I'm Going Down", "My Hometown", "Glory Days", "Born In The USA", "No Surrender", "Bobby Jean", "Dancing In The Dark", and "Working On The Highway".

VariousDJ Andy Smith's Jam Up Twist USA – R&B Rockers, Rockabilly, Northern Soul, & Sleazy Shakers ... CD
Cultures Of Soul, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 15.98
A great US take on the Jam Up Twist sound of DJ Andy Smith – the groove he explored on a previous compilation in the UK – now served up here in a different lineup for the states! The music is a mad mix of R&B, jump blues, rockabilly, and other raw sounds from the tail end of the 50s – very much like the sort of territory that Keb Darge has explored on his excellent sets with Little Edith – and the kind of sounds that go way way beyond well-known hits from the period! Smith digs very deep in the crates, and gets some help with selections from Deano Sounds as well – on this smoking set that includes "Honey Child" by Johnny Williams, "What's My Chances" by Chuck Flamingo, "Thanks Mr Postman" by Bobby King, "Lonesome Shack" by Ernie Washington, "Doing All Right" by Eddie Cash, "Swingin & Surfin" by Les Brown Jr, "Ever Again" by Gene Woodbury, "High School Caesar" by Reggie Perkins, "Monkey's Uncle" by Ray Sharpe, and "Pack Shack & Stack" by Billy Nelson.

A pretty dark little record from the waning mid 70s version of King Crimson – recorded on tour in the US by a quartet of David Cross, Bill Bruford, John Wetton, and Robert Fripp. The tracks are mostly live takes of tunes from earlier albums – "Easy Money", "21st Century Schizoid Man", "Lament", and "Larks Tongue In Aspic" – done in versions that are considerably more turgid than the originals, with lots of heavy guitar work.

✨✧ Made In USAMelodies (Made In USA plus bonus tracks) ... CD
De-Lite/Unidisc (Canada), 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A funky soul band with a bit of a clubby groove – and one that features some great male harmony vocals behind lead singer Jann Harrison! Harrison's got a very light style of singing – almost soprano at points, which makes the male voices especially welcome – as they help ground the grooves much more deeply down towards the basslines that are such a strong part of the album. The set's got a really classic De-Lite Records feel from the 70s – a groove that's right up there with the Kay-Gees at their best – with riffing guitar, bumping bass, smooth keyboards, and tight horns over the top. Titles include "Gotta Get A High", "Shake Your Body", "Try To Find A Way", "Never Gonna Let You Go", "Sexy Lady", and both vocal and instrumental versions of "Melodies". CD also features bonus 12" mixes of "Melodies" and "Shake Your Body". CD

✨✧ Sextet Of Orchestra USAMack The Knife – And Other Berlin Theatre Songs Of Kurt Weill (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Sony (UK), 1965. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The name and cover might be a bit boring, but the record features quite a hip group – a lineup that includes Eric Dolphy and Jerome Richardson on reeds, Nick Travis and Thad Jones on trumpet, Richard Davis on bass, and John Lewis on piano – all committed modernists, but in very different ways! As the title implies, the work here is all from the pen of Kurt Weill – the kind of angular material that really lends itself to the inventive arrangements and unique instrumentation of the record. Dolphy's work on bass clarinet's pretty darn great – and Richardson matches him on the instrument on a few tracks as well – with a very interesting balance of tone that illustrates the difference between both players. Titles include "Bilbao Song", "Mack The Knife", "Havana Song", and "As You Make Your Bed". CD features three bonus alternate takes! CD

Julie KellyNever Let Me Go ... LP
PA USA, 1985. Very Good ... $1.99
A bit less jazz than some of Julie Kelly's other work from the 80s, but still pretty great overall – that kind of California record from the time that doesn't really care if it charts at all – content on its own just to offer a good opportunity to an under-discovered singer! The arrangements here are by Steve Kaplan, who also handles the keyboards – and while jazz is certainly at the core of some tunes, Kelly's also a bit more soul/pop focused at other moments. Titles include "All Blues", "River", "A Face Like Yours", "I'm Gonna Lock My Heart", "Heaven", "Never Let Me Go", and "Never Really Knowing Why". LP, Vinyl record album

PA USA, 1985. Used ... Out Of Stock
Always-great work from sunny singer Judy Roberts – and an album with some real surprises! The overall sound is perhaps a bit more electric, and a bit smoother than some of Roberts' earlier albums – but given the sweetness of Judy's tone, the style actually works pretty darn nicely to bring out her best qualities. The album features some surprisingly nice covers – like a vocal version of the "Star Trek" theme (?!) that actually sounds pretty great, and a funky take on The Ohio Players' "Sweet Sticky Thing" – next to some even better jazzy numbers, like "Molly's Samba", "Finding Good Rules To Live By", "Rio De Janeiro", and a sublime reading of "Poinciana".

✨✧ Charles Packy AxtonLate Late Party (180 gram vinyl) ... LP
Light In The Attic, Late 60s. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $16.99
One of the greatest and most historically important compilations ever put together by our friends at Light In The Attic – the first ever (!!!) anthology devoted to Stax sax great Charles "Packy" Axton! Packy was a founding member of the Mar-Keys and a cat who played with the best of them – Steve Cropper, Booker T, Teenie Hodges, Donald "Duck" Dunn and many more – all of whom can be heard on this mindblowing set of benchmark vocal and instrumental singles from the mid 60s – truly the blueprint material for the great Stax and all around Memphis soul to come! It features singles cut for labels such as USA, Bar, Hollywood and Pure Soul – soul/R&B vocal numbers and proto-funky instrumentals. Amazing, amazing stuff recorded at Royal and Ardent Studios with some of the greatest soul music players to ever come together – so highly recommended! Includes "Holiday Cheer", "Bullseye", "Hung Over", "I'll Always Love" and "Late Late Party" by The Martinis, "No Ending" and "No Love Have I" by Stacy Lane, "House Full Of Rooms", "Out Of Control" and "I'm A Fool (In Love)" by LH & The Memphis Sounds, "Stone Fox", "Hip Pocket" and "Greasy Pumpkin" by The Pac-Keys, and "Hole In The Wall" by The Packers. 17 tracks in all – treated beautifully by team LITA – with a thick booklet of notes (by Andria Lisle) and full of vintage photos of the players, shots of the inner labels of the original singles, details for each track and more.

Ralph BurnsJazz Studio 5 ... LP
Decca, Mid 50s. Good+ ... $14.99
Fantastic work from one of our favorite jazz arrangers ever! As proven by some of his impeccable work crafting larger backings for artists on the Verve and Clef labels, Ralph Burns had an approach that was quite different than most of his contemporaries. He worked in a mode that seemed pretty standard at the outset – with an approach to backdrops that worked in broad colors of sound and tone – but he also had a talent for putting in strange modern twists, little surprises, and other embellishments that never detracted from the soloist, and instead seemed to keep them on their toes, forcing them to really come up with some great stuff during their time at the recording. You'll hear plenty of that kind of action going on here – in one of Burns' rarest sets ever, recorded with a group that includes Billy Byers, Joe Newman, Dave Schildkraut, Herbie Mann, and Milt Hinton. Mann's particularly great, and plays a number of horns with ease – and titles include "Cool Cat On A Hot Tin Roof", "What Am I Here For", "I'll Be Around", "Jazz Club USA", and "South Gonzales Street Parade.

Stelvio CiprianiRhythmical Movement (with bonus download) ... LP
Sugar/Cinedelic (Italy), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $24.99
Rhythmical movement is our favorite kind of movement – especially when it's done right, which it definitely is in the hands of Italian soundtrack maestro Stelvio Cipriani – who turns in some wonderful grooves for this rare sound library set! The album's got a funky vibe that matches some of Cipriani's best film score material from the late 70s from the keyboard-heavy cuts that he used in both love and comedy scores, to some of the more upbeat disco sounds he'd bring out for other films – although the album's pretty darn upbeat overall, and definitely lives up to the movement-heavy promise of the title! Most tracks are instrumental, with nice funky currents and keyboards – and titles include "What Can I Do", "Brasil Connection", "Living & Loving", "Don't Tamper With My Things", "Burglar Proof", "Percussion Gun", and "Chicago USA". LP, Vinyl record album

Family Vineyard, Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $12.99 14.98
Proof that the state of Indiana has some hidden corners of greatness – if you just know where to look! This collection serves up some barely-heard sounds from a mighty hip group – one who recorded most of this material in the college town of West Lafayette at the end of the 70s – with a very raw, creative, DIY vibe that easily rivals some of the better-known punk coming out of Ohio at the time! The group only issued a half LP – Hoosier Hysteria, split with The Gizmos – and a 7 inch EP, both of which are included here with a lot of rare tracks that never saw the light of day – and which, together, document a fantastic group with a really inventive sound – all the wit of the cooler Ohio groups, but plenty of raw punk energy too – finally given a full showcase in this package. Titles include "What's The Difference", "Damage", "Straight A Students", "Indeterminism", "Rocking Farmers", "Hold That Coed", "USA", "Can't Stand The Midwest", "Dude In The Direction Field", "Ladies With Appliances", and "Don't Complain About Muzak".

A surprisingly solid, oft-overlooked end of the 70s set for Sire by Flamin' Groovies – their final effort for the label – and a hard-groovin' gem! Like their previous couple of classic records, this one was recorded in England, with Groovies guitarist Cyril Jordan co-producting, and it's a nice mix of rawly rocking originals and some cool cover versions – with "Jumpin' In The Night", "Next One Crying", "First Plane Home", "In The USA", "Down Down Down", a cool, kinda shambling guitar rock takes on Warren Zevon's "Werewolves Of London" and Bob Dylan's "Absolutely Sweet Marie" and more.

HermanI've Made Up My Mind ... CD
Brunswick/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $13.99
A really compelling talent from early 70s Brunswick Records – by an artist who's got the same sort of genre-crossing vibe as Rodriguez, Jose Feliciano, or the team of Alzo & Udine! Herman hails from Colombia, but was a high school student in Miami at the time of this album – yet he also works with a great quartet of Chicago soul talents – Carl Davis and Eugene Record on production, Tom Tom Washington on arrangements, and Willie Henderson directing the whole band! The result is a unique hybrid of modes – folksy acoustic guitar from Herman, vocals that have a slightly progressive feel, and backings that sometimes groove in a Chicago soul mode, and sometimes go for a deeper vibe overall. Most tunes are originals penned by Herman – and titles include "Bring On The Rain", "I've Made Up My Mind", "Save The USA", "Stephy", "I Wanna Be Young Again", and "Take A Look At Me". CD

Prime period B-Sides, live recordings and other rarities from The Jesus & Mary Chain – great stuff from the first 5 or 6 years of their career – up there creatively with their best work ever! As dark-edged as the band is, they've often worn their influences on their sleeves over the years, be it the proto rock rawness of Bo Diddley, the catchy vocal style of early Beach Boys (though layered in razor wire) or the moody freneticism of Can – and they're all the more open with them on this collection,while still sounding like quintessential JMC. Classic! Includes "Kill Surf City", "Surfin' USA", "Upside Down", "Swing (Darklands Outtake)", "Just Out Of Reach", "Head", "Cracked", "Here It Comes Again", "Bo Diddley Is Jesus", "Rider", "Don't Ever Change", "Sidewalking", "Who Do You Love" and more.

The set features guest work from Martinho Da Vila, who also handled the music direction as well – and the whole thing's got just the right sort of timeless vibe to match that never-ending, never-failing energy that Mart'nalia brings to her music – a quality that's both steeped in tradition, but which also comes across with a fresh, youthful feel as well. Titles include "Coracao Em Desalinho", "Casa Um DA Vila", "Maracangalha", "Chiclete Com Banana", "Pra Que Chorar", "Carol Clarisse", "Aviao", and "Samba A Dois".

Frank MinionSoft Land Of Make Believe ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1959/1960. New Copy ... $13.99
One of the coolest jazz vocal albums you'll ever find! Frank Minion sings this suite of tracks billed as an "Introduction To Black Opium Street", and he puts the music together with little recitations in between the tracks, so that the whole thing sounds like one of the great Langston Hughes jazz albums from the same period. Minion's singing voice is in the same rich-toned tradition as singers like Johnny Hartman, but his speaking voice is raw and very soulful – and he gets more than able backing by a great set of players that includes Tommy Flanagan on piano, Roland Alexander on tenor and flute, Dannie Richmond on drums, and Paul Chambers on bass. The whole album sounds more like a rare session on Candid than it does the usual stuff on Bethlehem – and it's a surprisingly hip album that still holds up well over the years! Titles include "Oddsville USA", "Bongo Blues", "Autobiography Of A Musician", "Watermelon", "Flamenco Sketches", "Laughing Boy", and "Later". CD

Earl Palmer & OthersBackbeat – The World's Greatest Rock N Roll Drummer ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
The title's no lie – as the mighty Earl Palmer has handled the drums on countless rock and soul classics – and also cut some great records on his own! And while Earl's got a huge legacy that even extends through studio work in the 70s, and famous projects with David Axelrod – this set concentrates on the key contributions that Palmer made towards establishing the groove on the LA scene of the late 50s – served up here in a set of key recordings for labels like Aladdin, Specialty, Modern, and Class – which all have Palmer on drums – either behind a heavy soul singer, or leading an instrumental group on his own. The set's got a whopping 30 titles in all – all heavy stompers – and tracks include "Drum Village (parts 1 & 2)" and "Johnny's House Party (parts 1 & 2)" by Earl Palmer – plus "Rockville USA" by The Turks, "Chicken Shack Boogie" by Amos Milburn, "I'm Beggin With Tears" by Eddie Lang, "Mad About You" by Richard Berry, "Don't Feel Sorry For Me" by Jimmy Beasley, "King Kong" by Big T Tyler, "Koko" by Don & Dewey, "Jerry Jerry" by Artie Wilson, "Red Hot Rockin Blues" by Jesse James, and "In The Mood" by Ernie Fields – plus some other big hits you'll certainly recognize, but maybe not in this context!

SuicideSuicide ... LP
Red Star/Superior Viaduct, 1976. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99
Frankie, Frankie – OW! Take a broken-down synth, some crazy vocals, and a rich sense of imagination – and you've got one of the seminal groups of the New York scene of the early punk years. Suicide were a key bridge between earlier prog underground sounds and the art-rock punk styles that were coming out of New York in the late 70s – and one that was in a space that was completely their own – and still is, after all the decades since the release of this record! With this one landmark album, the band completely dismantled the cold German prog synth of groups like Kraftwerk, La Dusseldorf, and Tangerine Dream – and created a wild sound of spare anguish that brought a whole new dimension to punk rock. The album has got to be one of the top 50 "must have" rock records of all time – and titles include the cuts "Ghost Rider", "Rocket USA", "Johnny", "Frankie Teardrop", "Che", and "Cheree".

Incredible work from Spencer Wiggins – a late 60s Memphis singer who travelled in the same circles as James Carr, Percy Sledge, and Otis Redding, but who hardly ever got his due – despite talents that were clearly equal to his contemporaries! This beautifully-done set brings together 22 tracks that Wiggins recorded for Goldwax Records in the late 60s – a label that was also home to Carr's best work, and who does an equally great job with Spencer's deep-burning vocals on these sides. Many of the tracks on the set were written by the cream of the crop of southern soul writers at the time – George Jackson, Quinton Claunch, Isaac Hayes, and others – and backings are often spare and subtle, really letting Wiggins' vocals take center stage! CD features 20 tracks in all, plus some incredible notes – and titles include "The Kind Of Woman That's Got No Heart", "Old Friend", "Once In A While Is Better Than Never At All", "He's Too Old", "Soul City USA", "Walking Out On You", "Who's Been Warming My Oven", "I'll Be True To You", and "Anything You Do Is All Right".

Wilmer & The DukesWilmer & The Dukes ... LP
Aphrodisiac, Late 60s. Good+ ... $33.99
An excellent lost soul group – with a mix of funk and garage rock that was pretty unique, and which calls to mind some of the mixed-race combos that were playing around the showband scene in the south during the late 60s. The strong-voiced soul singer Wilmer fronts the more rocking Dukes – and the mix is a strong one for the hard grooving soul party crowd, heard most famously in the band's classic version of "Get Out Of My Life, Woman", complete with an excellent tasty drumbreak! Other great tracks include the instrumental "Get It", a version of The Stones' "I'm Free", Billy Stewart's "I Do Love You", and the band's own "Give Me One More Chance". Also includes a version of Steve Miller's excellent "Living In The USA", one of those numbers that's a lot more funky than anyone gives it credit for! LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDaniel Wang's Personal West End Megamix ... CD
West End/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy ... $24.99
We're not sure how "personal" this mix might be – given that it's on a CD for commercial sale – but we can say that it's plenty great, and a wonderful collection of rare gems from the catalog of disco powerhouse West End Records! Daniel Wang embraces all the upbeat, quick-jamming qualities of the label right from the start – and serves up a blistering non-stop mix of cuts that touches on many of the best moments from West End – cuts that both have soulful vocals soaring over the top, and some mighty heavy rhythms on the bottom! Titles include "Speak Well (Tom Moulton 12" mix)" by Philly USA, "Let's Go Dancin (club version)" by Sparque, "Give Your Body Up To The Music (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Billy Nichols, "Mary Hartman Mary Hartman (inst)" by Sounds Of Inner City, "Heat You Up (melt down mix)" by Shirley Lites, "Ride On The Rhythm" by Mahogany, "Can't You Feel It" by Michele, "I Was Born This Way (Tom Moulton 12" mix)" by Carl Bean, "Another Man" by Barbara Mason, and "Searchin For Some Lovin" by Debbie Trusty.

✨✧ Sonny CrissComplete Imperial Sessions ... CD
Imperial/Blue Note, 1956. Used 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Fantastic work from one of the most overlooked alto talents of all-time! This beautiful CD features tracks from Sonny's 3 rare albums on Imperial – Jazz USA, Go Man, and Plays Cole Porter. The records were all recorded in 1956 – and they feature some of the strongest bop playing to ever come out of LA, total proof that that city wasn't always noodling around with cool jazz during the 50s! Sonny plays alto so well you want to cry – and every note is perfectly placed, with just the right mix of technical skill and warm soulful humanity. Most of this material has only ever been reissued in Japan – and the CD includes wealth of excellent cuts like "If I Had You", "I Love You", "Wailin With Joe", "West Coast Blues", "Criss Cross", "Ham's Blues", and "Blue Friday" – but the whole thing's great!

✨✧ Herbert HunterRockin' Spar Masters ... CD
Superbird (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early 60s recordings by Herbert Hunter, a number of which are recorded with pseudonyms – rollicking & rockin' number that preceded the Spar singles that still fire up the Northern Soul connoisseurs – his earliest recordings for Spar! Hunter never had a smash breakout hit, but he did find one heck of a solid soul groove with Nashville producer Ted Jarrett in later years. Here he's trying out dance craze numbers and other trendy styles from the period, and they're pretty much nailing each, track after track! It's a blueprint for better things to come, and still a worthy batch of tunes. Titles include "The Twist" & Twistin' USA" as Johnny Keaton & The Twisters, "Dr Feelgood", "Your Cheatin' Heart", "I Can't Help It" and more billed to Herbert Hunter, "Peppermint Twist", "Now Let's Popeye", "Slow Twisting" and more as Leroy Jones, "Big Split Twist" and more as Marty & The Merits, "Bring It Home To Me" as The Now Generation and more. 20 tracks in all.

Muhal Richard AbramsSpihumonesty ... CD
Black Saint (Italy), 1980. Used ... $9.99
One of the earliest Muhal Richard Abrams sessions for the Black Saint label – and a set that's filled with unusual musical moments! The tracks here are somewhat freer than some of Abrams' work to come – almost in the looser creative improvised mode of the first generation AACM – expressed with a compelling array of players who include George Lewis on trombone and sousaphone, Roscoe Mitchell on alto and flute, and Amina Claudine Myers on electric piano, piano, and organ. There's slight electric undercurrents at points – thanks to theremin from Yhousef Yancey, and bits of synth from Lewis and Abrams – all used very sparely, and woven into the sound in subtle ways. Jay Clayton sings a bit – in those cool wordless lines of hers, almost instrument-like at points – and titles include "Triverse", "Inneroutersight", "Unichange", and "Sphihumonesty". CD

Judy BaileyYou & The Night & The Music ... LP
CBS/Be! (Germany), 1962. New Copy ... $16.99
Really beautiful sounds from Australian pianist Judy Bailey – a musician that most folks know for her funk work of the 70s, but who was already pretty darn great, right at the start of her career! This lovely little set was recorded in Sydney's El Rocco Jazz Cellar at the start of the 60s – and it features Bailey working with a magically fluid trio with Lyn Christie on bass and John Sangster on drums – the latter of whom you might know for his later work on vibes, and who seems to already have a melodic touch on his drums here! At times, Sangster's almost got a Chico Hamilton-like sense of subtle sound and rhythmic inflection – which works very well alongside the lyrically blue piano lines from Judy. Titles include "Night Dreams", "Night & Day", "Deep Night", "You & The Night & The Music", "Round Midnight", and "The Night Has A Thousand Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

Archie Bell & The DrellsTighten Up ... CD
Atlantic (UK), 1968. New Copy ... $8.99
An incredible bit of southern funk – the first landmark LP by Archie Bell & The Drells, and the first big burst of energy from the Texas scene of the 60s! The album's incredible – with Archie up front on rough-hewn vocals, the band grooving in a mad tangle of guitar, bass, and drums, and some super-fierce horn work by the TSU Tornadoes! You've no doubt heard the band's classic "Tighten Up (part 1)", but this album also includes the incredible "part 2" to the track – which takes the groove a million miles higher! And the whole album's equally great – filled with other tight soul gems that include "A Thousand Wonders", "I Don't Want To Be A Playboy", "Give Me Time", and "When You Left Heartache Began". CD

George BraithMusart ... CD
Prestige/Dusty Groove, 1967. New Copy ... $10.99 13.98
One of our favorite-ever albums on Prestige Records from the 60s – and a set that's a fair bit different than most of the other work on the label! The set's an unusual outing for saxophonist George Braith – cut after his famous albums for Blue Note, and in a mode that's quite different – very far-reaching, and almost spiritual at points – with the blend of jazz and other modes that you might find on the Cadet/Concept sessions in late 60s Chicago! Braith plays a wide assortment of saxes – c-melody, alto and soprano – but his playing here is a bit different than the Roland Kirk-like vibe of before – sometimes more stretched-out and exploratory, in a Nathan Davis sort of vibe – sometimes wrapped up in some larger explorations from the whole group. There's moments of raw percussion with echoey production, others with wordless vocals floating alongside the lead soloist, and still others that have that catchy blend of soul jazz and exoticism you'd find in the music of Eddie Harris or Yusef Lateef – even though Braith here is completely his own artist too! The set features Jane Getz on piano, Jay Carter and Eddie Diehl on guitar, and Ben Dixon on drums – but there's also a lot of percussion, both Latin and otherwise, from a shifting lineup of players. The whole thing's wonderful – and titles include "Del's Theme", "Musart", "Evelyn Anita", "Our Blessing", "Laura", and "Splashes Of Love". CD

Pete Brown & PibloktoThousands On A Raft ... CD
Harvest/Warner (Japan), 1970. New Copy ... $15.99
Long hair, jazzy riffing, and all the best hope that the early years of prog had to offer – all coming together on a record that's years ahead of its time! It's really hard to put a label on Pete Brown's sounds with Piblokto – music that's maybe more poetic than most of its contemporaries, but also has more of a bite, too – definitely that wit of Brown's that never dimmed at all, and instrumentation that's super-sharp, and super-smart – but never too full of itself to be overly indulgent. The songs are longer than on the previous Piblokto record, but in ways that only flesh out the ideas even more fully – on titles that include "Highland Song", "Aeroplane Head Woman", "Got A Letter From A Computer", "Thousands On A Raft", and "Station Song Platform Two".

Joe Byrd & The Field HippiesAmerican Metaphysical Circus ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good- ... $9.99
An amazing little record from Joe Byrd – an artist with roots in serious music, but who's serving things up here with a wild hippie aesthetic that makes the whole thing come across more like a "happening" than the usual sort of studio album – but in ways that also echo an earlier generation of Americanist composition too. The process of the record mimics some of Byrd's famous work in New York – and has a very collaborative feel overall, with elements of electronics, acoustics, and vocals coming together beautifully! There's some great tabla, harpsichord, moog, and organ on the record – plus more serious woodwinds and brass – and vocals from Victoria Bond, Susan De Lange, Christie Thompson, and Ernie Anderson – plus Joe himself. Titles include "Kalyani", "Moonsong Pelog", "You Can't Ever Come Down", "Gospel Music", "Nightmare Train", "Leisure World", and "The Elephant At The Door". LP, Vinyl record album

An amazing CD issue of Susan Cadogan's 1976 LP – plus nearly another LPs worth of bonus tracks! The Hurts So Good album features the more romantic side of Lee Scratch Perry's producer vibe – a style that gets a little lost with younger collectors who clamor for the Scratch's freaky Roots feel – but the vibe compliments Cadogan's smooth vocal style perfectly. Nice! Album cuts include the great title cut, "In the Ghetto", "I Keep on Loving You", "Feeling Is Right", "Fever" and "Shame". The bonus cuts feature the single edit of "Hurts So Good", plus a number of Upsetters cuts from the vaults and others – including "Dub It", and "Rub A Dub" by the Upsetters,"Junior Byles cut of "Fever", "This World" by Milton Henry, and more.

CandeiaSou Mais Samba (Candeia/Seguinte Raiz/Samba De Roda/Raridades/Candeia O Compositor) (5 CD set) ... CD
Tapecar/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 70s. Used 5 CDs ... $49.99
A 5CD package filled with great work from this Brazilian samba legend – three full albums, plus two discs of rare material too! First up is the Candeia album from 1970 – lovely samba work from Candeia, a singer with a voice that's richly expressive, but often without any effort at all – a laidback approach that's instantly compelling, laid over some lively old school arrangements! There's a bit of horns mixed in with the percussion and backing vocals – making the set feel more like some early 60s set than you'd guess from the date – and Candeia more than lives up to the spirit with an equally classic sound in his vocals! Titles include "Sorriso Antigo", "Viver", "O Pagode", "Prece Ao Sol", "Outro Recado", and "Ilusao Perdida". Next is Seguinte Raiz – upbeat, lively, and mighty nice – an early 70s set from Candeia – a Brazilian samba singer who never cracked the big time, but who's well worth discovering all these many years later! The album's got a rootsy brilliance that's wonderful – and almost tops some of the bigger samba sets from the same generation – with an approach that's always right on the money, making you feel that the music's got an organic quality that really matches Candeia's rich vocals! Titles include "Vem E Lua", "Saudacao A Toco Preto", "Silencio Tamborim", "De Qualquer Maneira", and "Vai Pro Lado De La". Samba De Roda is a damn great little record from Candeia – a set that's even rootsier than his earlier albums – with lots of heavy percussion at the bottom, and an earthy quality that really hits home right from the start! Candeia's vocals are wonderful throughout – slightly raspy, and very individual – no easy samba cliches at all – and coming across with a sense of personality that makes us feel like Candeia's serving up the tunes just for us, right on the spot! Titles include "Brinde Ao Cansaco", "Conselhos De Vadio", "Camafeu", "Acalentava", and "Sinha Dona De Casa". Then, the box also features a CD titled Raridas – which includes obscure singles and collaborations – including work with Escola De Samba Portela, Partido Em 5, and Dona Ivone Lara! And last is the CD O Compositor – which features 14 Candeia tracks done by other artists – including Os Autenticos, Mensageiros Do Samba Da Portela, Osvaldo Nunes, Cabana, O Coral, Zaira, and others.

The band features organ, guitar, bass, horns, and some upfront conga solos from Candido. Tracks are longer than usual for this sort of album – and there's a lot of strange elements floating through the tracks, in a very nice way!

A slightly gentler album than the first Captain Beyond outing – but one that really has the group stretching out their wings wonderfully! The set's recorded both in Macon and Sausalito – and really has a vibe that indicates that mix – a core southern rock element, handled with the soulful undercurrents of early 70s Capricorn Records – but given some freer-thinking elements at times from the Bay Area scene! The drums power through nicely at some of the best points – but even the laidback tunes are pretty darn great – and we honestly never can understand why Captain Beyond weren't as big as some of their contemporaries from the southern scene. Titles include "Starglow Energy", "Evil Men", "Drifting In Space", "Bright Blue Tango", "Everything's A Circle", and "Voyages Of Past Travelers". LP, Vinyl record album

A beautiful album of samba tracks – recorded with a warm intimacy that really gets at the talents of the group! Four samba giants – Nelson Cavaquinho, Cadeia, Guilherme De Brito, and Elto Medeiros – join forces in this 1977 session recorded for RCA Brazil. The vocal stylings of the artists are shifted from track to track – so that most numbers feature one of the quartet stepping out as a lead vocalist, with accompaniment by the others – which makes for a very collaborative, almost spontaneous sort of feel – just the right setting for these legends of the genre. Titles include "Sem Ilusao", "Noticia", "Amor Perfeito", "Nao E So Voce", "A Vida", "Sou Mais O Samba", and "Gotas De Luar". CD

Elektra/Big Beat (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $14.99
One of the great lost psych albums on late 60s Elektra Records – a set that's maybe got enough power and majesty to stand next to contemporaneous label releases by Love and The Doors! Like both of those groups, Clear Light have a vision here that's completely their own – a sound that steps out immediately to let you know that they're not just another copycat combo from the garage underground, and instead have this vivid new message that demands to be heard – unabashedly forward in its conception, and with a surprisingly sinister edge – yet all without any sense of being too full of itself either! Production is by Paul Rothschild, and is as superb as his best Elektra work of the period – and titles include "Black Roses", "With All In Mind", "The Ballad Of Freddie & Larry", "Sand", and "Night Sounds Loud". CD features great bonus tracks – the never-issued "Bye Bye Boogie Man", "She's Ready To Be Free (stereo)", "The Susan Years", "Dawn Lights The Way", and "Eastern Valleys" – plus the mono single of "She's Ready To Be Free", and two tracks by The Brain Train – "Me" and "Black Roses".
